Of Growth and Boundaries

There is something amazing about PHYSICAL growth: as beautiful and necessary as it may be, beyond a set limit, it would be a disaster – actually a malignancy! Have you ever imagined what we would look like if we don’t stop growing physically after a particular stage in life? Many of us would be giants…

Impossible Love

Often times, we have family conversation, in our home. I am growing deeply fond of it because it seems to bring more clarity to pressing life matters we may not be giving deliberate  attention to at the moment. Yesterday was one of those conversations, and here is one  of them, I thought it may be…

Wholesome Education for Life

One consistent truth that has been ignored more often is this: we need to think the HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CITIZENRY, not periodic interventions. It seems elders and leaders would rather establish errors/negligence as the the standard; legacies are priced over the future of nations. The future of nations is the sum of the futures…

Conversation with Flared Emotions

Yesterday, I had a very heated conversation with some friends in one of the places where I work, bordering on the present challenges going on in Nigeria. More than ever before, it is clearer to me why God’s intervention in Nigeria is inevitable. Without God, there is no hope! Generally speaking, I have seen young…

Counsel for Would-be Spouses (Men)

In recent times, I have found myself having a lot of conversations with single men (not many of ladies :-), about choosing a spouse and getting married (I guess ladies prefer to talk to women like them). As a matter of fact, so much burden has been heavy on my heart in this regard. So,…

Is there the Authentic Design for Sex and Love?

Recently, I stumbled on a Netflix series of documentaries by an international journalist on sex and love around the world. I decided to download the episodes and listen, beginning from my continent – Africa. The things I heard are very disturbing. I literally could no longer follow the series with my eyes open. . .what…

What Do These Things Mean?

The search for understanding is the wellspring of life. . . those who make their camp around understanding are ever-green and never in lack of what is needed. But understanding is not an easy get. It requires a deliberate immersion in life’s processes till the ‘Why’ is clear enough for a decisive action. These processes…

The Cares of Youthfulness

Youthfulness is the beginning of dreams and the end of innocence; yet, it is one of God’s uncommon blessings to humanity. It presents opportunities that can be matched with skills, values that are responses to problems and work that can be done because of the abundance of life’s primary resource – time. As beautiful and…

Rage or Revelation

It all begins with a strong desire between a man and a woman. They start to grow fond of each other, spending more time with each other than regular. As soon as the man can recognize her as the help that he needs; and the woman can recognize him as the covering that she needs,…

One More Thing. . .

In my last post, I mentioned the experiences of a young lad with his master and how he responded to it. From this same experience of servitude that led to the understanding of his environment, and the subsequent use of same to change his future experiences, my focus today is on the quality of the…
